A long-term interview takes place with Jobs when he left Apple and ran the company called NeXT – in 1995. However, this interview, whose original recordings have been lost, is only presented to the audience in its full form in 2010. This interview of Steve Jobs, taken 6 months before he returned to Apple, shows his foresight very well.
